Thumbs up Congrats Cubs Fans

Kept everybody in suspense there but a thoroughly well earned Series win.

Should honestly be extra Series bonus money considering how many generations, (literally), since the last Cubs series.

Now go sacrifice a billy goat!

Think it's going to be a loooooooooooooooong night in Chicago. People look very happy in the streets.

Now we don't have to listen to them piss and moan about never winning a series!

I gotta be honest, it feels pretty great.






Go Cubs Go.

2:20 mark gives me chills.



I hope that someone, somewhere is hugging Steve Bartman.

It was game I could not turn off.

Stolen from my buddy Pete on facebook:

Quote:
...October (November now, I guess) baseball provides for more pure drama and pitch by pitch tension and intrigue and memory-bank moments than every October NFL game combined. No clocks, no whistles, no referee-driven pace of play, no non-stop commercial breaks, etc. In the end, baseball players throw their gloves into the air and pile onto each other on the mound and celebrate like my 8 year old's did. The game melts you down, the history slows you down and brings you back; even to 1908. A lot has changed in sports and in the world but last night brought you back like only Baseball can. If you don't get it, than you don't get; it's like trying to explain the beauty of a sunset to someone who keeps saying "big deal, it's just the sun."

Millions Of Drunk Cubs Fans Rioting In Heaven Following World Series Win



Quote:
According to reports, after one fan managed to affix a large “W” win flag to the top of the Pearly Gates, a large mob of Cubs fans began violently shaking the gateway as they chanted third baseman Kris Bryant’s name for nearly an hour. Sources confirmed that the gold-paved streets were quickly littered with empty beer cans, cigarettes, spilled food, and other refuse, while a number of inebriated fans were also seen urinating against the sapphire, emerald, and diamond–encrusted walls that protect the sacred realm.

In addition to firing a slew of Roman candles upwards into infinity, a pack of belligerent fans reportedly succeeded in rocking the Throne of God back and forth until the seat of the Almighty Father tipped over onto the ground, after which several men and women began jumping up and down atop it.

Many witnesses also reported seeing at least one fan hunched over and vomiting over the side of a cloud.

“We did it!” shouted former Chicago resident Arnold Mathis, a victim of the 1918 flu pandemic, after climbing up the Tree of Life and bouncing on one of its branches. “I can’t believe we actually did it!”

“Everybody’s getting [email protected] up tonight!” added Mathis. “I’ve waited my entire afterlife for this!”

Some of the festivities reportedly began getting out of hand when a group of Cubs fans lit the Ladder of Divine Ascent on fire, and shortly thereafter, several teenagers dumped an entire pitcher of beer on the head of an archangel as he attempted to fly through the raucous crowds. Numerous men were later seen stripping off their shimmering Heavenly robes and streaking through God’s Kingdom.

...

According to sources, the championship celebrations are expected to continue for much of eternity.

“Cubbies! The curse is over, baby!” said longtime fan and father of three Andrew Horton, slurring most of his words as he adjusted his Cubs hat underneath his halo. “I just [email protected]’ [unintelligible], you know? Man...[unintelligible].”

An epic win for a well-deserving team and fans. Lots of Chicagoans in Seattle - bars were filled last night with them and a few lonely Cleveland fans.

You should be! I don't watch a lot of baseball but last night had all the drama one could want - other than a benches clearing brawl.

108 years is a long time to wait - makes our Maple Leafs fans - who haven't won a Stanley Cup since 1967, look like impatient pikers.
